US actress Elle Fanning and Serb-born French comic book writer Enki Bilal will join the jury for this year's Cannes festival alongside Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos and French counterpart Robin Campillo, organizers said Monday.

The panel will be made up of four men and four women under its president, Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who was named in February.

The rest of the jury comprises Burkina Faso's Maimouna N'Diay, American Kelly Reichardt, Italy's Alice Rohrwacher and Poland's Pawel Pawlikowski.

Australia's Cate Blanchett presided last year's jury which awarded the Palme d'or accolade to Hirokazu Kore-Eda's Shoplifters.
